The Lowcountry's next big question: 'What about Hurricane Jose?'

However, Jose made a decision to change paths and spared the Caribbean and is now hurling in the Atlantic. Maximum sustained winds are near 75 miles per hour (120 kph) with higher gusts. Long-term models diverge wildly after four or five days, but one Global Forecast System model does predict Jose making a path up the east coast and eventually hitting the coast of NY in about ten days.

"We hope we don't see Jose", S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster said of the hurricane at a Tuesday morning news conference focused on Irma's aftermath.

Hurricane Jose is hanging on as a 75-mph tropical cyclone that remains in an idle before taking a path that could send it harmlessly out to sea.

Computer models, commonly known as the "spaghetti models", have the storm turning to the northeast late this week or in the weekend and then spinning towards the North Atlantic. Hurricane Jose now sits on the northern side of the Caribbean Islands and it might just be heading towards the Canadian coasts.

As with Irma, Jose's exact threat to the United States is still unknown and will be determined over the coming days.

The storm is not expected to impact Southwest Florida.

Hurricane Jose, which has been lingering as Irma took aim at Florida, has weakened slightly as it circles in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the National Hurricane Center. Of 20 runs of the GFS model ensemble forecast Monday morning, 25% resulted in an eventual landfall in the USA, and another 25% in Canada.
